Hello! i like the feel of stratocaster body. its so comfortable, ergonomic, light..it feels good. i allso like the necks from gibson but not the heavy body of les paul or uncomfortable body of SG guitars. are there any guitars with strat type body and gibson style necks?

If you like the general vibe of a strat but don't like the neck, check out the Silhouette Special from Musicman - the necks are better than anything on a Gibson - they are incredibly comfortable smaller than a Strat neck.

But nothing like a Gibson, which is what he wants.

TS, off the top of my head I don't know of a guitar that has that, I think Epiphone may have produced some more Strat-like guitars but I'm not sure what the neck is like. Maybe Danny will drop in here and have some advice.

Gibson made a strat/superstrat shape or two. The ones I know are the Victory and the U2

EDIT: There's also the Epiphone Prophecy EM2.
Gibson RD Silverburst w/ Lace Dissonant Aggressors (SOLD)
Electra Omega Prime Ceruse
Fender Franken-Jag Bass

Amps and the like:
Laney VH100R
Seismic Luke 2x12
Dunlop 105Q Wah
Gojira FX 808
Line 6 M9

If it's simply weight that's the issue then a chamberted LP is the way to go. Typically 7lbs +/- a few ounces.
Moving on.....

Yamaha and Ibanez used to have guitars that fit the description. You can get lucky and find the occasional one used.

PRS and other guitars were originally designed to bridge the gap between strat and LP.
You just need to get out there, try some guitars and find one that suits.

The first question I'd ask is what a is it about Gibson necks you like the most? Is it the cross section?



Is it how they are tapered? As in, do you like a skinny or fatter neck?

In addition to what you guys have mentioned, I think there's a lot of other considerations to be taken into account here. It's very likely that the OP just prefers shorter scale length found in SGs and LPs. If so, then I don't think you will ever find a superstrat or a strat copy with 24.75 scale, but I might be wrong.

Maybe OP just likes the feel of finished necks for some reason, or even maybe OP finds LP headstock shape comfortable because of the tuning pegs alignment.

Yes but gibsons dont have wide necks.

Since when? I have had a few SG's that will beg to differ. and PRS only call it a wide fat neck it is more like a slightly larger 60's profile, very comfortable.

read up on PRS, they were designed to be a melt of Fender and Gibson and I think Paul hit it on the head when he originally made the first Standard 24.

I was always under the impression that wide necks were one of the things traditionally associated with Gibbies...

It occurs to me that some of the Stratclones have beefier necks. Check out G&L- their Tribute line is roughly analogous to made in Mexico Fenders. Godin might be more to your liking as well.

That's the one.


Now I want it.

Even though I have a PRS SE Custom, which is basically that with a trem and 24 frets.

Warmoth builds 24.75" Strat kits.

Alternatively, Fender makes an MIM Short Scale Stratocaster for $400. It's 24" like a Mustang or Jaguar, though.
